My name is Bushra and I am 26 years old and already have 2 sons and a daughter. I wanted to be a school teacher growing up but then my father got sick and I took this job to pay for his bills. I sit on my stitching machine 8 hours a day making polo shirts for British High Street Brands. I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, working in the factory is nowhere close to being a school teacher but now I love working here.
I’ve also recently become a labor leader. I sit with the management and work on labour demands, i.e stricter sexual misconduct policies, more training programs for women and day care center for working mothers who can't leave their kids at home.
